Just waiting for the odd one to flail just right and bite his toe........
He ain't no man-eating fish fool, he's elevated.
I have the high ground, Anakin
I believe that's my line.
Shoot my bad, I misread the script
Cut! Dammit Burgintosh!
The cutting happens later, as he's jumping - did ANYBODY read the script?
Obviously not! Alright people, back to one, let’s shoot th— hey, WHERE ARE THE EXTRAS? Who sent the extras back to holding?????
Sorry boss was that not where you wanted them?
Hi so I'm supposed to be in the background? Where do I stand?
I don’t read the script, the script reads me
I want to be in the screenshot you guys
Put me in the screenshot too but blank out everyone's usernames including mine
Why with the blank usernames, gotta drive it like you stole it
Well hello there
Excuse me? I mean, Hello there!
Username checks out
my brain explodes
Yeah, in a boat. Being elevated makes it more likely he falls out.
I see no other god up here
Do not question the elevated one
Please note that he is missing a toe on his right foot.
No he’s not? He just has his toes spread out
Please note he has a fish-shaped bite gap between his toes.
Now I don't know what to believe
People are gilding any old comment these days. I remember when it was reserved for only the most insightful, funny, or thought provoking comments.
Edit: though -> thought
I got gold once for a math error.
My first gold, just a few days after I joined Reddit, was for this joke:
A duck walked into a drugstore and ask for some chapstick.
The cashier said "Will that be cash or charge?"
The duck said "Just put it on my bill."
So the bar has never really been that high.
OOF I never have gotten any type award at all.
H o l y
s h i t
whoever did this you are da best, just made my whole WEEK.
In your face.
People throwing gold around. I thought everyone on Reddit was a broke millenial.
Maybe that’s why they’re broke XD
Nah, avocado prices went down. We're back in the green!
But when will we able to award comments Reddit Avocado Toast?
Broke Baby Boomer, here.
nah, yer a unicorn.
I'm a rich millennial
Now you know they’re dumb too. Broke and dumb enough to spend money on gold.
Be wary, calling out the new reddit standards gets your downvoted to oblivion.... At least that's been my entire experience so far....
Reddit is bad for serious discussion. It's the internet version of the angry mob going to lynch someone
Clearly you've never been on twitter.
Twitter is direct hate reddit is a slow burning std.
While cracking jokes about gallows humor the whole time...
I love Reddit because of cute dog pictures.
I'm getting real tired of the "wow, reddit upvotes this?? But in the other thread I said it and I got torn to pieces. Damn, reddit double standards" or "wow, everyone on reddit <generalizes>". Someone on another thread called me a dumbass for saying something, I showed proof that what I was saying was factually correct (but unintuitive, which is why I was posting the correction), and then he went off about how only an idiot gets mad at someone online and it doesn't matter anyway if I was right or wrong
I think I'm done with this site for a bit. I wish there was an alternative for more serious discussion.
Apparently things have changed.
Such insight, much thought provoke!
When the hell was that?
Now this is just getting ridiculous
Yeah this is incorrect. His toes are just spread out.
But lying on reddit gets you gold!
Apparently, we can say it was a certain paradigm. Good enough to convince an award.
(sorry, just trying to get you some gold. I'd do it but I'm poor)
Yeah, but he used to have six toes.
Gold for a false statement? Weird
I thought this was a joke at the fact that it looks like he may have an extra toe
We’re calling that experience, to apply for this one, you need it.
"WHERE'S THE MONEY LEBOWSKI?"
He used it as bait before he moved on to deli meats.
I’m more worried the boat might tip.
The piranhas wouldn't attack him unless, maybe, he was bleeding from a wound or something. They eat dead stuff, not living
They are drive by scavengers as well. meaning they will eat your fin if they can get away with it. Which in turn can start a frenzy. They are diverse predators but the scavenger title is more of an idea. Any scavenger will kill and eat fresh any time they can they just often live below the apex line and can't compete for resources on the same level as other predators or prey (sometimes proper prey size is animal is just better then them but not another predator of a similar range) it's very complex but simple as long as you remember even a herbivore will eat a prey item (read: smaller/weaker/more passive) when they get a shot.
I have a friend that was doing research on cow nutrition. He stumbled across a paper written in the UK during the early years of the green revolution where a guy played around with the nutrients and minerals he was feeding a bunch of different cow herds.
One of the herds of cows started actively hunting and eating the rabbits that came into their pasture.
I wish I could remember which mineral he was withholding from that herd's diet. I think it was salt or calcium. Either way, they stopped the behavior once he reintroduced the missing mineral into their diet.
But the image of a herd of cows hunting rabbits has stuck with me.
Animals are going to do what they can to survive. Whatever that means.
Looks like it might have been phosphorus, neat!
Cows gonna cow
I'm told that all herbivores are opportunistic carnivores. Like, they'll eat a mouse in their feed, they won't eat around it.
There are videos on YouTube of deer and horses and other herbivores eating ducklings and other small animal, very weird and unexpected.
Imagine the rabbits screaming while they are chased. I can. A rabbit on my property ran away from me into the neighbor’s hurricane fence and got caught. The neighbors dog came running over to see what was happening. The rabbit panicked and screamed at a high pitch shocking me and the dog. The bunny got loose, but it sticks in my head.
This guy scavanges!
Squatting with your junk in the line of fire.
They will absolutely attack a whole person. Its just less likely. In this case they are already in a feeding frenzy so I wouldn't risk it.
Except even then it's enough to accidentally get cut. And it's a frezny already with the meat, some of them might bit anything at that point.
Clearly you have never seen Piranha 3DD.
The most accurate movie about piranhas around
I take back everything I said !
"Don't rock the boat, don't rock the boat, baby"
"Rock the boat, don't tip the boat over"
Penn and Teller did this once. They had Teller swim in a tank full of pirahnas. They won't attack you unless you are bleeding or something.
Yeah I would not do that with bare feet.
A real man would stick his foot in the water to catch the piranhas directly with his toes. Bait is for wimps.
Waiting for him to tip
Over into the water
NO SHOES OR NOTHIN JESUS
Then he slips and falls on his face
Or his weiner
might happen. Some dude caught a pirana he thought it was dead tried to remove something from the mouth it bit the dudes finger. Also there's some story of how some bus crashed into a pound of piranas the people all got eaten alive by piranas
You're too nice I was waiting for one to grab his taint
Or worse yet, the nuts
Can someone make a gofundme to get this guy some Crocks?
I was thinking his balls
Idk, I get the feeling he's been doing this for a bit.
I absolutley counted the toes. Thought there was no way he has an even number.
Piranha don't tend to care much about large live creatures. They mostly scavenge. Don't stick your finger in their mouth, but otherwise, these buggers are busy going "OH SHIT, I CAN'T BREATHE!"
I’m more afraid of one jumping up and biting his dick
Then he jumps back, tips the canoe, and gets vaporized in a strawberry flash.
Or even something worse, a more sensitive body part.
I can't trust these fishes with that pose.
More like bite his balls
Hes a village man. His toes are rocks from calluses
There's a gap between his first and second toes on his right foot. A Piranha could've done that...
What if he falls off
They wouldn't bite him. Pharana are attracted to the scent of blood as long as he isn't the one bleeding they won't actually care. They would actually most likely just keep frenzy on the piece of meat on the string until nothing is left.
They don’t. Most piranhas only know to attack flesh that is already dead.
Source: I personally hand fed piranhas chicken scraps in the Amazon (Tiputini River in Ecuador). They never attempted to bite my feet or hands but shredded up the chicken in seconds.
Does dead inside count?
I would upvote but you’re at 69
I wish more numbers is sex position
68 - you do me and I'll owe you 1.
Once it reaches the outside, yes.
Did you have your hands and feet in the water?
I have also been piranha fishing just like OP's video in Brasil. The locals advised us to keep any body parts we value out of the water just in case.
Yes hands and feet (and face with goggles on) in the water. Not going to lie it took a lot of internal struggling to get myself to put any part of my body in the river.
Glad you didnt put your willy in.
You never know, he may have put it and now he no longer may have it.
Whatever happened to that dude on Reddit with the two dicks? Maybe he has one he can loan out.
Well, it was fake. So he does not. Sadly. I remember that post, and the many others later that explained the fake.
Oh you’re going to need to link me to where it was fake because everything I read said it was quite real
Edited to add in my OC.
Please link me i had no clue that was fake I'd love to know the story
Edited my post to add link.
Hehmm it’s “she” now
FFS i spat out my coffee at your willy. Have an upvote you mad fool.
That's true. We all know that's dead flesh
The little spiny catfish guy will swim up your pee hole and and wedge himself in there.
Eat them? Sell for food? Sell as exotic pets?
We just did it for fun as a tourist experience. You know, city folk visiting the swamp lands of central Brasil.
We also learned that when riding your horse through the swamp, if you see little bubbles in the water, go around that spot.
Why would you go around that spot?
Now I know where to hide when the zombie apocalypse happens.
But won't the piranhas become zombie piranhas and then only eat live flesh?
I’m betting my money on the living piranhas to tear the zombie apart before any can get bitten. And moreover, a undead piranha would naturally be a target for other living piranhas.
How would a piranha differentiate between your hands and chicken scraps?
It’s not like they process how your hand looks different from food. The smell is on your hands and all over the water as well. I would think they are just creatures that chomps whatever their mouths can get a hold of.
Depends on what is available. If they are hungry enough they will eat each other if there isn't a better option. One of the idiots my mom married had 3. Kept them in a tank I can only describe as far too small. Went went on a vacation and came back to 3 live fish with the small one missing a couple mouth shaped chunks.
How can they tell so quickly. It’s like they instantly swarm to bite the flesh
Well, to us perhaps flesh is flesh, but to a creature evolved to recognize it, edible flesh probably looks very different from flesh that isn't ideal for their diet
How do they know (in 2 milliseconds) if its dead or not?
r/danganronpa Apparently ALL piranhas only eat dead flesh
How can they tell the difference? (You know, prior to biting)
Well I know what dead smells like, I'm sure they do too.
Whenever I try to smell things underwater it just smells like water. That smell always makes me pass out too.
A couple years ago I actually swam in the water with piranhas and nothing happened but my parents right next to me fishing with some sort of meat and they would catch some of them.
So if I wanted to get rid of a dead body this would be the way to go?
Actually yes, throwing a dead body into a river with piranhas would yield a pile of bones in probably less than 5 minutes. The water moves so fast and is so murky that those bones would be in the Atlantic before anyone could even decide where to look for them.
So thats the most interesting source I think Ive ever heard. Can you go into some detail? Do people eat piranha? Should I eat piranha?
I was only living there for about 2 months but on multiple occasions we had piranha for meals and it is a small but pretty tasty fish. Kinda similar texture to catfish in my memory. The village always throws their food waste into the river so it can be eaten by the piranhas (pretty nice sustainable solution). I got to help out a few times and that’s how I got into this situation.
I'l definitely trust this redditor.
What would happen if you had a cut or open wound on your finger I wonder?
Look up a picture of a piranha. See how they are kinda "glittery"?
Their scales are only shiny when they grow back after being bitten by another piranha. Every one of those sparkles is a scar gifted from another piranha.
They are social animals and they use the opposing forces created by the rest of the swarm to bite off chunks. In the feeding frenzy they frequently bite each other on "accident," but they don't typically do much damage because they stop the friendly fire quickly.
This doesn't sound right, but I don't know enough about the layering of photonic crystals in fish scales to dispute it.
Well then thats when the smoke goes up in the sky and makes stars..
It gives that bar the nice smokey smell that we all like.
Make sure the Coors sign is on.
What do you think is behind that door marked “pirate”
Fun fact: At "Mac's Tavern" in Philly, the bar Rob and Kaitlin own, they actually have a door marked "Pirate."
I too recently watched that
Complete and utter fucking bullshit. Piranha are sparkly as a self defence camouflage. It makes them look like sunlight glittering across water.
Why the fuck would you just make shit up and post it? Does purposefully misinforming people make you feel like a good person?
Your explanation is boring, I choose to believe his explanation
That's just the way it be sometimes
Well I've tried like 6 times to do an old school angry face and Reddit just wants to embarass me.
So I'm gonna roll with it
Apostrophes aren't for plurals
Do you want a boat full of piranhas? Because this is how you get a boat full of piranhas!
Just give it a moment and you’ll have a boat full of dead piranhas.
First one that dies is food for the rest!
They still bite tho @.@
Not as bad as a boat full of crocodiles.. why im afraid of crocodiles you ask? Gee, i don't know, maybe deep down I'm afraid of any apex predator that lived through the K-T extinction. Physicaly unchanged for a 100 million years, because its the perfect killing machine. a half ton of cold blooded fury with a bite force of 20,000 neutons, and stomach acid to strong it can dissolve bones and hooves.
That hunk of meat gets so small so quickly...
Yet, I was thinking he's using more meat to catch the fish than he is going to get eating the fish.
I'd assume they have a reason for this. The meat cod be bad, or they could use the piranhas as bait, or any number of uses that those people learned that we don't have to.
could be definitely body of a murder victim, they are trying to get rid of the last bit of evidence.
Try the bathtub, Jesse.
I mean a single piranha can take off a piranha bite of meat. Do you think there's less then a piranha bite of fish in a piranha?
As for nutritional values, I have no idea, but I think he is getting more out of it
Right? If he wasn’t getting more edible meat he wouldn’t be doing it.
But the meat stays in the fish?
Are you gonna eat the fish whole?
The innards of the fish can likely be repurposed in some other venture. As bait in another kind of fishing, or as fertiliser, or added to animal feed.
obligatory 'that's what she said' comment.
Maybe it's old stanky meat
Whoa, whoa, whoa. There’s still plenty of meat on that bone. Now you take this home, throw it in a pot, add some broth, a potato. Baby, you’ve got a stew going.
But it becomes a part of the piranha, so you get it back
Imagine falling in
No, I don't think I will...
Eh don't worry. They'll only go after you if you're bleeding or wearing something shiny, much like sharks, barracudas, and wahoos.
Is a wahoo not just a cheer?
I believe it's a University of Virginia student...although, I'm failing to see the relevance to the rest of his comment.
Like, if I was on a rollercoaster, I might shout, "Wahoo!"
Sorry...lol...I know what you meant. :) Was just being sarcastic.
I wouldn't cheer if those teeth got a hold of me.
That's a big fish
L O N G B O I
There's always a bigger fish.
They are also delicious. That and Mahi Mahi. I would take either over fresh tuna.
Wahoo might be the best tasting fish I’ve had in my life.
ohhhhhh so THATS why theres a map called Wahoo World in splatoon
No, youre thinking of early 90s Australian comedic actor: Wahoo Serious
It's also a Pensacola, FL minor league baseball fan.
But then u need really small hands/ fingers
Also a Cleveland Indians mascot
It’s my cousin
WAHOOWA!!! Go UVA
Actually I believe it's a racist stereotype.
Just one of those fish has to take a nibble to start the chain reaction, though.
How small of a nick in your skin would be enough for just one of them, the more curious one of the bunch, to take a test nibble?
A popped zit?
More like a large papercut-size.
You underestimate my zit wounds.
Even if that's true, considering their frenzy, one is bound to bite you by accident. Then you satisfy the first criterion that you mention and hence you qualify as food, the rest comes along.
I guess you never saw the River Monsters episode on Piranhas, did ya?
Teller got a large chunk of his toe bit off while trying to prove this.
I had no idea what a wahoo was til I caught one
Thor1138 it's theoneguy111700 on reddit again.
So wear a tight Speedo. Got it
A Speedo isn't going to hide your meat, it's going to expose it for the entire world to see.
Exactly, tight underwear will only send the piranhas into a sex-fuelled frenzy.
r/evenwithcontext that’s just... not right.
You know it's bad when they skip r/nocontext.
Are they for sale as pets, if or do people eat piranhas?
You can eat them, and they apparently taste really good.
Only problem is those guys are a little small
They may be destined to be bait for catfish or peacock bass
You can eat them, and they apparently taste really good.
They're tiny! That seems like a lot of effort unless you can fry it and eat the bones as well.
seems like a lot of effort
seems like a lot of effort
Im guessing you've never eated bluecrab
I've ated blue crabs!
We're all eated bluecrab on this blessed day
Is good, right comrade?
All eated up from inside mate!😔😟😞
Comrade?! Are you in there!? I can't hear you!
Speak for yourself
Or crawfish. Those things aren’t worth the effort.
Once you get the technique down, crawfish can take as little as a few seconds to fully de-tail and suck the head. And it is well worth the effort. Most crawfish boils are social gatherings so talking and being around people is part of it.
Edit: Editing top comment, having massive amount of Cajun blood running through my veins, I have extensive knowledge of crawfish and seafood in general. Anyone want good recipes or information about seafood, let me know and I'll try my best to answer :)
suck the head
suck the head
Haha so if you're actually lost, during the boiling process, you dump tons of seasoning in, along with all the other helpings such as potatoes, garlic, onions, sausage, lemons, oranges, etc. The crawfish do a really good job of sucking up all the spices into their little bodies. Most of it gets in the main part of the "body", not the abdomen (a.k.a. the tail). When you "suck the head" you pull the tail from the body and then you are left with the "head" portion of the crawfish. You can literally suck the juices from the head of the thing and get all the spices at once. Often times I'll use my pinky and scrap out the little bit of very flavorful meat in the body.
I can't get on board with this.
Most people who have never had crawfish before can't stomach that part. Along with the fact the "vein" that runs down the tail is actually poop 💩. I tend not to tell people that until they've tried a few first. :)
I thought the same. If you’re a seafood person, you’d be surprised
You don't have to suck the head. Most people I know don't. The tail's plenty good when done up right.
Can confirm. Born and raised in Cajun country. But I never suck the heads and always de-poopify the tails. The flavor is definitely worth the effort plus it tends to be more of a social event than anything. Rarely will anyone eat books crawfish alone.
Dont forget the corn cobs !
I knew I was missing one of the more important ones
Yeah took me a solid while to get the technique down
Just gotta make sure your thumb has a long finger nail to make it easier
Even then if i dont get all the meat i rlly like the juice if its not the spicy flavoring
Growing up in New Orleans, my extended family would have giant crawfish boils. To eat enough, you have to compete against all your cousins, aunts, and uncles. You learn very quickly in that environment ;)
Key to speed eating these things, is cracking the first two shells of the abdomen when pull the tail from the body. Then use the side of the thumb nail to unravel the two cracked shells and then bite the meat and pinch. If you do it just right, you can do it all in one quick motion, ~3 seconds. Repeat for 7lbs lol
I usually have a lot of hangnails since i have a horrible habit of picking my nails till they bleed so sometimes when i get the chance to have crawfish its painful and i gotta eat slow ;-;
I went to a crawfish boil with a friend and his family and they made both regular and spicy ones, though halfway through his mother dumped a shit ton of the spicy flavor into the pot so ended up having to eat the spicy ones
I love spicy foods but its still so painful 😭
Hahaha if I know I'm gonna be peeling and eating any seafood, I avoid all damage to my fingers for the week leading up.
Same here. I’ll wear gloves and then IT’S ON! Even if everyone calls me a pussy.
Or if you go to buffets and you go at a time where thy don’t fucking hoard all the crawfish then your golden
That time doesn't exist.
Maybe not for a meal at your house, but at an outing with some friends and a couple drinks they’re great.
This guy Marylands.
I've had crabs before.
"you can see em, just cant catch em"
I like Bluegill and they are about the same size. It's a nice mild fish (from a stocked pond at least) IMO. Its worth the extra work I think.
Get about 20 small to medium sized Bluegill and use an electric knife (like people use to carve Turkey and such) to fillet them. You start right behind the gills, go down a little bit and then run the knife along the spine towards the tail - but not all the way off. Then flip that bit over so its scales side down, start at the tail that's still attached and fillet along the scales towards the front. It goes real fast with some practice. Fry those up with some breading and you have Fish Chips!
Scraps go to the field/garden for random cats and raccoons to scavenge off. What doesn't get taken by the animals acts as fertilizer; especially if dumped in the garden. That works really well for sweet corn in particular it seems like.
Fish "essence", guts/blood or like you said the bits left over do indeed make one of the best fertilizers we have at hand usually, but my experience is only with pickerel or maybe jackfish from a lake. Not sure about the fish you mentioned but if we accidentally spill our bucket of scraps on the grass, in short order we have a dispropotionally verdent and thick patch of grass.
Not all them are tiny, there are a many species of piranha of which iirc only 2 are carnivorous (red-bellied and black piranha)
They get to be a few pounds depending on the type.
If you got a blender you could make a smoothie
You can, I tried that once, but you need to eat a lot of them.
They do taste fantastic tho.
I've eaten piranha when I visited the amazon. They weren't much bigger tbh, they are quite tasty
I thought they were super bony. Am I thinking of something else?
They definitely are, but still delicious. The effort is worth it for a small snack IMO but not as the main protein of a meal
Have you ever seen some of the fish that Asian people will eat? Just about every time I've been fishing at a damn, there's been at least one Asian person there catching tiny fish (sometimes smaller than these) by the hundreds. I guess they just eat them whole? I really don't know.
A lot of small fish tend to taste really good and most Americans I've met are just complete wusses about bones in general. If they're really small you can fry them until the bones get crunchy and just eat them whole too.
And even then, some of the smaller fish have flat ribs and can be filleted
Probably sunfish like bluegill, readear, pumpkin seed, or waemouths.
They are small but actually have some pretty tasty meat. They call them panfish and they fall under the same class if fish as crappie. I have seen some redear get to be 2 pounds or so
No, definitely not. I'm talking like minnows. I'm a big fisherman and would know any of those species like the back of my hand.
Well shit then Mabye he was making pho and using them for flavor. Otherwise snacks for days?
Theres always a bigger fish
So you’re telling peacocks can be bass?
Wouldn't they have tons of parasites?
I don't imagine so. Plus cooking them would get rid of that
My friend let me introduce to you the sardine. Delicious, but those bones are bitch to deal with.
Fishing for your bait? That you use as bait for bigger fish?
Honestly, where does it end with you people?
Brazilian here, piranhas this small are used to make a type of soup called CALDO DE PIRANHA, which has a reputation of being an aphrodisiac, some people nowadays call it "natural Viagra". You basically boil them with potatoes, tomatoes and spices then get the larger bones out, put it all in a blender, then add more spices and enjoy!
Larger ones are usually deep fried or roasted.
So, like a south American Bouillabaisse. Really want to try piranha now.
Muito interesante, cara! You can just edit your comment btw.
I mean they’re fish, so I’d assume some people eat them...
I use to have a golden apple snail... and some ghost shrimps... my aunt told me that they’re both delicious when I showed them in family chat .-.
Piranhas make great soup.
That's pretty cool. I didn't think it was possible to make soup underwater.
Have you never seen Spongebob? come on now!
Definitely can be used in aquariums. Not sure about eating them they seem very small in this video but I know they get bigger
I bought piranhas from a fish store in New Jersey to keep in a tank. They had to be triple bagged because they'd bite at the corners and pop the bags. Had them for around 5 years, hard fish to keep though.
I kept 5 of them for a couple years. Bought them the size of a quarter and they grew to about 5-6 inches. Then they ate each other...
Need a big tank and they are very high maintenance. I was young and dumb and didn't provide those things.
You can get em as pets if you look for them. My dad worked in an office with piranha. They were fed dispatched goldfish.
Depends on the state. Some states don’t allow them for fear they would become invasive:
Not pets. Dinner.
They taste like fish. Not surprisingly.
I have eaten one. It was ok. A little dry. They don't have much meat.
Growing up, I had a red bellied piranha. Pretty sure we had it illegally. We fed it a dry food that smelled like death. He would get super skittish when you’d get close to the tank and start to freak out, but otherwise, he would make a bit of a valley in the stones on the bottom of the tank, and just chill in there. Relatively boring pet honestly, but I’m not much of a fish person.
If you fry them until they are really crunchy, they are just delicious! Lots of bones, but they are crunchy and you can just munch through them. So good.
Source: I had them a few times when I lived in Manaus, Amazon, Brazil.
A friend in hs used to work at a pet store and loved those piranhas. A few of us were over his place (his mom had left) and eventually the dare thing happened. One guy decided to put his finger in the tank.... The piranhas just sniffed around and did nothing. We were so disappointed. The guy then goes to the kitchen and grabs a steak or something and it was fucking nuts. I wish the paranhas had taken the finger but it was chill.
Poke a finger with a needle and tell him to try again
Or use your dick
His dick may not be sharp enough. I'd suggest the needle instead.
There seriously needs to be a sub of quoted that sounds like they were in a naked gun movie
Ah, the old reddit dick-a-roo!
I feel like rule 34 would apply to that.
Should I poke my dick with a needle first? Or will the blood that usually comes out of it be sufficient?
You were disappointed that piranhas didn’t strip your friends entire finger of flesh in seconds?
Some rubber soled sandals or boots would be very handy in this situation. I'm nervously waiting for one to jump up onto his toes.
They only eat dead, bleeding, or shiny meat. He is none of those. He could jump in the water and the piranhas wouldn't touch him, something else in that water might tho
Now that's interesting! Never knew that.
What meat glistens? Other fish?
Yeah, scales tend to be pretty shiny
Yeah just let them suffocate without batting an eye. There's a lot of brutal stuff we do if you break it down..
What, is there no r/terrifying?
There is but it's garbage and dead
Easiest. Job. Ever.
Just don’t fall in.
Also, don't fall out
So the fishing glitch in rdr 2 was based on this...
wait...what fishing glitch?
I think you take a 3 star animal and place it in a specific shallow spot, the fish come flocking and end up beaching themselves.
Yeah what fishing glitch
This seems like a good way to lose your balls.
Hmmm... how to prepare tiny ass fish.
gut, wash, salt and pepper cavity. Fry until edges are crisp.
saute onions, garlic, tomatoes, thyme and habanero's. Add ketchup, maybe some soy and fish sauce. 4 oz of vinegar. Cook to quick boil. Cool and pour over fish.
r/sweatysoles in this case
Well, that is an interesting sub, with all 102 lovers of soles.
Scrolling through I thought this WAS r/outrun
Not enough triangles and neon colors for that tbh
Just want everyone to know that there’s been no reported death of a human by piranhas, he’s complete safe
I just watched a nature show on TV going through numerous cases of guys getting their whackers bit off & bleeding out. Might’ve been tiger fish, but I could swear piranhas were in one.
Maybe someone got their whacker bit off but didn’t die? Honestly don’t know but piranhas aren’t known to feast on humans
Thanks to smartphones , powerful computers with hd cameras and mikes, we get to see stuff like this which otherwise we would only see in nature documentaries or read about in books written by travellers. Smartphone accessibility has really made us more familiar with the supposed unfamiliar parts of the world.
Growing up in the 80s, movies made me think I needed to be prepared for pirahnna attacks and quicksand
Killer clowns from outer space threw me in quicksand filled with piranhas in ‘88..
Shit you not.
That's some next level " the floor is lava"
Of course he’s barefoot.
This seems like a close toed shoes kind of activity.
Is there some kind of a hole right under his feet that they keep disappearing into or are my eyes playing tricks on me?
That's where they keep the alligator
This not the activity to perform barefoot.
At some point he learned to squat on that seat and not with his feet in the boat
Can’t believe his balls of steel haven’t sank the boat
Wow, the fish are really biting today.
Some lucky evil genius is making an upgrade to their lair!
That's actually kinda scary
This bears the question...” Just what does one do with a boat full of piranhas?”
Have you never henched? Ok. Your boss is about to lower the “hero” in to a pond full of piranhas. Who do you think sources the piranhas?
And don’t even ask me about fitting the frickin’ lasers on their heads.
Here is your gif!
I am a bot. Report an issue
That’s a new take on the floor is lava
how does he still have F E E T
Piranha is super lean meat, was not tasty.
I want to see how he’s getting down from that post he’s squatting on without having them attack his foot
I want to trust people, like this mf trusts that tiny plank he’s squatting on...
The bravery to do this without shoes is astounding
Is nobody else concerned about his exposed toes being so close to the bitey bois?
I guess I never thought about people eating those wild-ass things
Ya know..when i was a kid i thought piranhas would be a bigger problem in adult life. Still scary but I'm glad they are much farther away
Look behind you...
Damn. That's interesting.
Looks like similar rules to crabbing for mud crabs. Once they are loose on the floor, keep your toes clear...!
I would just stick my foot in to fish
Watch your toes!
WTF could go wrong?
Safe to assume humans can’t swim in that lake?
This little piggy got eaten by a fish.
Do. Not. Slip.
That's the easiest way to fish I've ever seen. Didn't know people actually ate Piranhas though.
How do they taste? How are they Prepared?How are they Served ? Whats The dish called?
If my research has taught me anything, that bait should be picked down to a cartoon bone by now.
I just love that the piece of meat he's using gets smaller and smaller each time.
I can assure that subtitles would make it even funnier
And when the bottom of the boat is full what then? He just puts his feet down and toes back to shore?
Imagine falling off
Ha! Stupid fish
At that size, it looks like he has to catch a few hundred just to break even on the meat he's using to catch them.
I think I would opt for some steel toed boots.
All I can think is, how many do piranhas do you need to make dinner and what is the best way to cook them?
The Floor is Lava: Jungle Level
In college one guy had a piranha and another had a Beta. After 4 years it was decided to have a battle between them. They were put in a big tank with a screen for a week or two. Bets were taken. The screen raised...the Beta inhaled the Piranha. 2 second fight.
I’m truly dumb I thought the piranha was on the rope and the guy was fishing random fish from the water...with his pet piranha I guess...
Edit: and was just flipping his piranha pet till it dropped the fish it caught wow
Don't slip. Don't slip. DON'T SLIP.
If it looks stupid, but it works.
Its not stupid.
What does one do with those piranhas?
are they good tasting?
When your profile says your 6’
Piranhas taste very fishy. Think "five days in the sun salmon" fishy. There's a pungent aftertaste of seaweed and blood, as well. The most commonly eaten piranha is the Pygocentrus nattereri, the "red bellied" piranha which is found in the Peruvian and Brazilian waters near the shore and lives off cadavers in the water.
Imagine your foot falling asleep and wanting to stretch it...
The guy recording says "If women here were like these piranhas we would be rich"
Stupid question perhaps- but is he catching these in order to eat them?
*Puts hand in to feel the waves
Now I want to know what piranha tastes like
Are piranhas good eating?
Can you imagine the first person to discover a river full of piranhas? Fuck.
The floor is lava..NO...
The canoe is pirahna!
It's kinda fucked how they are just being left to suffocate
Ancient problems require ancient solutions
Anyone else think that piranhas were much bigger than they really are?
At least wear shoes or something...
You guys over estimate how violent piranha really are.
This is mildly terrifying
They’re eating each other in the boat omg!!
taps head twice
Why are they fishing for piranhas though?
They’re a popular street food I noticed when I was in Brazil. Usually smoked/grilled on a skewer. They smelled... strong. I did not try them.
The guy can squat for a long time r/slavessquat
I would not be barefoot doing this
Are they good?
Never tried em
You can’t ever go hungry with so easy fishing.
Wohh-oh, here she comes...
I’m curious why he’s specifically fishing for piranhas. Any insight?
Come on get in the boat, fish!
Fish be dumb
Man: the predator’s predator
How does piranhas taste?
looks easy AF. but if he fall off from there....
or you can just use a net? even a makeshift one would be 100x more efficient
This is why steel toes were invented. We just reapplied it here.
i wonder what piranha normally eat, because wouldn't they quickly devour everything faster than it could reproduce?
Oh my god, just bring a stool.
Who the fuck wants piranhas
When I was younger my stepfather bought 4 piranhas and put them in the aquarium where they obviously ate the other fishes, which I think was the intention in first place but I don't really remember. Those were some weird times lol
Foresight - steel toe hightop boots. Experience - me SS Ng toes
In the next episode, the fisherman falls in...
Is this for food or population control?
What are they for? To sell as pets or do people eat these lil fellas?
Can you eat those?
so lemme get this straight- he could stick his hand in there right now and not suffer a single piranha bite?
i call bullshit.
yeah kinda similar to this.
suppose thats one way!
Uh fuck that
Pork stuffed piranhas just got easier to make
There’s always a bigger fish
Are these guys going to become bait for larger fish? Or sold to novelty pet stores? Can they be roasted whole and eaten as a street food snack? (Because if they are going to be tank fish, this is a hella stressful experience and would probably kill a large percentage of the catch, and that seems like bad business.)
Correction: that’s how you catch piranhas that you’ve been starving in a controlled environment
I'm sure they taste good. But I don't think I want to eat something that devours flesh.
I will fucking PASS
do you even squat bro
Why would one catch Piranha? To eat?
Do pirahnas tast good tho
Do they eat them or why are they fishing them?
Anyone know what language they were speaking? It sounded almost Slavic, too accented to be Portuguese.
It's brazilian portuguese
Oh wow, it sounds so different, that’s amazing!
Wouldn't even call it fishing. Just catching lol
“I used the meat to get the meat”
